Bratislava and Vienna are two neighbouring
cities linked by a shared and a dividing history.
Based on these specific historical and contemporary relations, in May
and in October 2004 a research project was take place with artists from
Whereas Bratislava is marked by its actual existence as a border city,
and thus actual borders are present – and will also remain in the
city and its architecture and biographies after those borders come down
in May 2004 – the borders of Vienna and its people are much less
on the surface. The drawing of boundaries, demarcation, is reflected in
the representation of power in the architecture of the city, in politics
and in people’s heads. Similar to the younger generations in Bratislava,
many people in Vienna occupy themselves with the subject of the border
rather as imagination, projection, fiction.
